2017 Bike Ride 4

Today’s ride was a bit shorter 25.6 km with a stop in a Left Field Brewery. The Bang-Bang sour ale is quite good. The bike lane on Cosburn is pretty nice, but the best bit was coasting down Gerrard’s cruves from Woodbine to Coxwell.

It was a lovely 24 degrees out today with brilliant sunshine. I took the opportunity to take a nice long bike ride (33.5 km) and help the city out by finding and reporting several broken water fountains.
